We have lived in the area near Tubac for eight years. We have avoided Tubac Jack because all our friends and neighbors avoid it. On this occasion, we were in the company of a young lady that is a recent resident. She had been to Jacks with her mother, and wanted to go back.we arrived in the early afternoon, and... More

We always enjoy stopping at Tubac Jack's when my wife decides we need to visit Tubac for shopping.. The food always seems to be good and it's just a fun place to relax for a afternoon cocktail. At times they have entertainment but so if you are looking for that you might want to check in advance..Nice patio area but... More

Really fun place, with live cowboy music (the night we were there anyway!) I had the authentic Green Chili Stew. I will have to go back again and have another bowl, it was DELICIOUS!!

While shopping for various decor items, we stopped at Tubac Jack's for a quick lunch. It took almost 15 minutes for the wait staff to even recognize we were sitting at a table and another 7 or so minutes before the drink order was taken. Then we waited after finishing our drinks for the server to come back over to... More

Avoid the deep fried pickles they are ghastly...... ewww. Huge Onion rings, I can eat just a few. I have yet to find my fav meal. They write down your request but they will serve the food as written on the menu. Nice cold Mexican beer.

We visited during Luminari Nights this year so the menu was restricted but they were very accommodating to my picky pallet. I had the Prime Rib which was outstanding and my husband had the Spinach Bread Bowl. Warm interior and friendly staff.

We needed food in a hurry, and Jack's green chili filled the bill... and then some! Huge bowls contained chili that did a slow burn, eventually firing up our mouths about half way through. We didn't have time to try anything else, but his smoker (standing beside the patio) looked like it could produce some well-smoked BBQ. We'll try the... More

Chad, Thank you for your feedback. We certainly had a few missteps during Luminaria nights, and while most of our guests had a great time, a few fell through the cracks, you included. I want to assure you that was not a typical experience at Jack's and that we take great pride in our fresh food and scratch kitchen.. If... More
